HP ProBook S Series laptop

HP has unveiled the ProBook S series of laptops to replace its HP Compaq line.

The laptops will be available with 14in, 15.6in and 17.3in displays and will go onsale immediately. The HP ProBook S-series machines will run wither Windows or Novell's SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11.

Carol Hess-Nickels, HP's director of marketing for worldwide business laptops, told Reuters: "We want to provide a different option ... it's probably a little time yet before we'll know exactly what the demand is, but we did think it was something worth trying."

Very few spec details have been released but HP say the laptops will come with a 3D DriveGuard. This protects the hard drive if the laptop is dropped. The HP ProBook S machines will also have spill-resistant keyboards and come in a range of coloured designs.

The ProBook S Series laptops will be priced from $529 (£362) in the US, although UK pricing hasn't been confirmed yet.
